This month the meeting will be in Studio C at the Paramount. It's the studio at the end of the entrance hall, the one with the hardwood floor and all the nice lighting.

July CMWA Meeting

The CMWA summer picnic is being hosted by Denny Myers and Roxanne Wyatt at their shop near Royalton (7505 Hillton Road, Royalton). The club is providing the meal; a donation of 5.00 per plate would be appreciated. There will be several grills set up if you would prefer bringing your own grillables, but the CMWA will be providing brats. Bring a dessert to share and be a hero. Bring your family and join us for a great evening of camaraderie and food.

June CMWA Meeting

Wednesday’s meeting will be held at the Paramount in downtown St. Cloud. The topic will be hand-applied shellac finishes.

May CMWA Meeting

Wednesday’s meeting will be held at Dave Blenkush’s shop north of St. Stephen. Dave is going to give us a vacuum pressing presentation. He has some pretty interesting projects in progress and we’ll get to have a look at them as well as a tour of his most impressive shop. Dave’s shop is a full-boat woodworking shop, complete with his own CNC machine, and a complete machine shop shares the building with his woodworking shop. Dave has built quite a few of his own woodworking machines and they look like they were produced by a major tool manufacturer. This is a meeting you don’t want to miss!
